Book Review: The Devil You Know

The Devil You Know

By Mike Carey

The Devil You KnowThis book started out so promising. It had a wise-cracking protaganist with a great name (Felix Fix Castor). It had good pace, good mystery, and some interesting characters, and of course a dash of the paranormal, as Felix is an exorcist. Even Felix’s approach to exorcism was unique (he plays a whistle, of all things). And then the story goes and gets itself wrapped up in Eastern European crime and an unbelievable choice as the ‘bad guy’ and it lost my interest. There was also some confusion due to UK slang, and the author assuming the reader would be as familiar with London neighborhoods as he is. Overall, though, it was still an enjoyable read. Felix’s voice as the narrator, and a surprise twist with a succubus at the very end saved it from being too disappointing.

I give it 3/5 stars.
